Comic 584 – “Adventure Panels”
Errol: I asked Manpans to give me a small snippet of her adventure game panel notes so I can use it in the comic. She sent me this massive tome, which I had to edit heavily and I still didn’t get everything in.
Manpans was in her element. You should have seen her go. I didn’t have to say a thing, really. I just sat back, drank water, and watched her do her stuff! Huzzah, Manpans!
Manda: I heard nothing about “small snippet”. As proof, here is the vague gmail command I received:
Errol: cool, could you send something youw ould have said across four panels? 😀
me: so…write the comic…like what i would have said in the panel?
Errol: no, just write what you would say in paragraph form for me to split out
See? Nothing about “small snippet”. Besides, it’s better to have too much than too little. And you said lots of things! But yes, I hogged talking time. I couldn’t help it. I was having so much fun, and people were actually asking questions! Errol knew about a lot more games though, so he had lots of good points.
So many words! XD But yay now I can feel like I went to the panel lol.
There were a lot more words than this. I wasn’t expecting anyone to read those words. 😀
But the words were interesting! I’ve never heard of most of those games, but it was still good to read about them 🙂
See?! People want to see my words 😀
You could always write something up on that new blog you have…
Uh, it wasn’t a matter of people not wanting to see your words.
We needed to fit them in the comic!
I read the words and discussed them with my family. My parents had played Adventure. My dad linked this for us: http://www.web-adventures.org/
Ha! I so desperately want to play a text game now… oh well…
Playing Adventure now.
In the fourth panel, shouldn’t it be formulae, not formulas?
Hmm, I don’t know if that is my fault or if that’s manpans fault. 😀
I suppose its an easy enough typo to make even if you’re trying to get it right…
Manpans is much better with grammar than I.
And yet I didn’t get formulae…foolish Manda
I need to pack.. *is procrastinating* XD
You guys should have visited EMC today! It was super fun and my first con. Well, it was a mini con, but it was still awesome.
If a con invites us to go, we would go! 😀
O.Ta.Kon. The problem isn’t the invite, it’s the paying.
So… we discussed how it is 8 am, I know it’s 8 am. It is now 6 am EST, and I am refreshing in hopes of something new. There is something very wrong with me. As Jez can well attest to.
I refresh on a semi-regular basis too- mostly for new comments though.
I do that as well. Comments are my fuel :D.
Me too – even though until a few days ago I didn’t comment myself. I think I was partly looking for something I felt like I could reply to and actually add something to the discussion.
We need to teach others that adding to the discussion is not really a requirement. 😀
I’m the best threadjacker on the planet. 😀
Always nervous to do that…. X.X
Made it to Biloxi. Hope I can make the podcast. About to get dinner.
